Tony Benna & David Elliott – Experimental Animation 2005 0:40 min San Francisco, CA 

Experimental stopmotion with an Eadweard Muybridge influence. Originally made for a collective experimental video project called "voltron tower.” Music by Hans Moleman. 


I make movies here in San Francisco, I'm 26 years old, and currently working doing freelance video and animation jobs around the west coast... at the moment I have very little desire to work for a production company, and enjoy doing freelance, due to the amount of creative control and the excess of free time it allows to continue making my personal projects... I have an animation background, and tend to use various animation techniques in my video work. I believe that works of art should be public domain instead of commodities. I like the creation process more than the created product. I enjoy moving images because of their power of emotional manipulation. I feel success if one person in a crowd tells me that they laughed, or felt nostalgic, or cried, after seeing one of my movies.
